Lyrics (10)

Guest review by

"Damn, damn, damn. Talk about a schizophrenic reaction to music...I was really stoked on hating this. In fact, even as I sit and listen to it, something in my brain is telling me I should hate this...but I have to admit, this is actually pretty solid."

Doc Godin

One of the most praised thrash releases of 2011, Time Is Up is indeed an album that instantly infects one's brain with its catchy songs and almost lives up to the hype created around it. After this album, Havok will certainly need no introduction, but as of now, let me give you some basic info. Havok come from Denver and are part of the new wave of thrash. They already have one album under their belt, which received a lot of positive feedback, too.

Rating: 9 Best of 2011.
The best song in my opinion is scumbag in disguise because of the new stuff in this song.
And wut's with this drummer? no words can describe this guy,the new flavor he is adding to this band is awesome.
I can't keep this album out from my playlist.
Although i somehow agree with the reviewer in that harsh comment 'the new album simply sounds like a plastic overproduced soulless toy to play with just once' but i also agree with the idea that this album is 'by-the-book thrash. What else do you need?'
And i really needed that injection of thrash music along with the Ironbound injection.
Keep it up HAVOK

  Honestly, I don't see the hype with this. Bored the crap outta me. Just another Thrash album with no creativity whatsover.
Covering Fire is the only thing keeping me from giving it a lower rating. Best song on the album.

Rating: 6 Yeah, gotta agree with Lit.
Though, I did enjoy individual songs on this release. The opener is fun as hell, there are great moments in D.O.A., The Cleric and Scumbag in Disguise. But that's just it, moments, almost always ruined by spasms of boring riffs and weak mid-tempo sections.
Oh yeah, and Testament want their fucking riff back, kids.

Rating: 9 This is not in the top 20? How come?
svartberger - 17.02.2013 at 20:26  
Rating: 10 One of the best thrash albums ever among with the great classics...just because is 2011 doesn't meen it can't compete with the 90's

Rating: 9 D.O.A. is the proof that new thrash metal bands can also be good.

Rating: 8 Good modern thrash album again by Havok, I cannot say that I'm disappointed. But what I can say instead is that Burn beats this album in my books, because of its exceptionally strong tracks "The Root of All Evil", "Morbid Symmetry", "Category of the Dead" and "Afterburner", while here we've got "Prepare for Attack", "Fatal Intervention", "No Amnesty" and "Covering Fire" that are also great songs, but only the first two being among my Havok favorites. I can totally see why people would prefer this album, but I don't agree on scores higher than 8 for this one. A strong album nevertheless for semi-intense/intense headbanging sessions
